Agrosecurity

Threats to agricultural security can come in many forms: natural, accidental and intentional. Operations within agriculture and its related industries may be undermined by terrorists, disgruntled employees or others intending to do harm through the nation's food supply. Losses due to natural disasters and accidents can be just as dangerous. Well educationed employees and emergency response teams can minimize both the threat and the damage.

The UGA College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences has taken on a major role in training the state on agrosecurity issues. Other related activities include an international web network to identify invasive species, education the workforce in the green industry, cutting incidences of salmonella and fighting pests in urban settings.
